0 Reviews
Deux mondes is widely regarded as the most communicative text available for beginning French courses. Based on the Natural Approach developed by Tracy Terrell and Stephen Krashen, this text offers beginning language students a way to develop language proficiency (especially in listening and speaking) that allows them to participate in real conversations at a very early stage. The Natural Approach in general, and Deux mondes, Sixth Edition in particular, present material inductively (so that the activities drive the grammar), students quickly become excited about their rapid growth in comprehension and vocabulary acquisition and enjoy speaking in the non-threatening environment made possible by the activity formats.
